look how freaky the button eyes are!
Watched this movie with mum yesterday. Fuck it scared the shit out of me. Very simple movie, yet it tells the moral of the story that children should always be satisfied with what they have or it'll be even worse!
Buttons have never seemed so scary. Wtf man. Button eyes! They freaked the shit out of me! How can something so simple... look so evil? It might be entertaining for kids. But for adults, it seems to send an eerie message and chilly vibes through the whole movie.
THUMBS UP! Will defeinitely wanna watch it again!
This is the plot of the movie :
As the tale begins, Coraline and her parents move into an old Queen Anne style house that had been subdivided into four flats. Coraline's parents are always busy with their work and pay her little attention. Isolated, Coraline goes off to explore. She meets the other inhabitants of the house, Ms. Spink and Ms. Forcible, two elderly women retired from the stage, and an even older man, Mr. Bobo, who trains mice to play music. She also encounters a haughty black cat who has also seen the Other World.
While playing outside, Coraline meets a new, but weird friend, named Wyborne Lovat, who eventually hands her a doll which looks exactly the same as Coraline. He had found this doll in his grandmother's attic and thought that it was to be given to her since it looked like her. But to no one's knowledge, this was a spy used by the Other Mother to spy on people who were unhappy with their current life and lures them to the Other World and trap their souls there forever.
Coraline then finds a locked door in the drawing room, though the entrance beyond is bricked up. The next day she takes the key to the door, opens it, and finds a dark corridor leading to an apartment almost identical to her own. This alternate world is inhabited by her Other Mother and Other Father, who are near-replicas of her real parents, except they have buttons for eyes. She also sees the cat, who can speak there. These Other parents at first seem more interesting, fun and caring than her real parents. At the day's end, the Other Mother offers her a chance to stay in this world forever if Coraline will let her sew buttons over her eyes. Coraline is horrified and dashes back through the door to go home, much to the disappointment of the Other Mother.
Upon her return to her apartment, Coraline finds her real parents are missing. They do not return by the next day, and Coraline, discovering they were kidnapped by the Other Mother, resolves to rescue them. Coraline returns to the Other Mother's world with a seeing stone given to her by her neighbors.
The Other Mother becomes angry when Coraline refuses to accept gifts or love, and she imprisons Coraline behind a mirror as punishment. There she meets three children from different eras who let the Other Mother sew buttons in their eyes, and were then tossed aside and had their lives devoured when she wearied of them. Coraline falls asleep, and the Other Mother decides to take Coraline out of the room, which wakes her up. Coraline challenges the Other Mother in a game to find the children's souls and her parents within the Other world, using her wits and the seeing stone. Coraline finds the children's souls with the seeing-stone and finds her parents in a snowglobe. She throws the cat at the Other Mother, much to the dismay of the cat, and then escapes to the real world, forcing the door closed on the Other Mother and severing her hand. Back in her apartment, Coraline finds her parents safe and sound.
The next night, Coraline discovers that her task is still not done: the Other Mother's severed hand is still in Coraline's world. It attempts to steal the key so the Other Mother can win Coraline back. Coraline lures the hand to a well and tricks it into falling in with the key, ridding the world of the danger of the Other Mother**************************************************
